  5. Ensure that your contact details are available on the last slide for delegates or researchers that would like to contact you after the conference.
  6. Please prepare the tip/tool/template that you have indicated in the abstract submission as a handout for the delegates. The handout should not exceed 2 x A4 pages and can be printed back to back to hand out during your session to the delegates. The handouts will also be uploaded onto the ACSG website with your presentation.
